This interactive application from the National Atmospheric Emissions Inventory allows you to explore emissions data from their 2017 inventory.
The estimates calculated by the national atmospheric emission inventory help to provide a picture of the important sources and trends in emissions and removals and to focus action to improve our local national and global environment.
This data is used for a number of purposes including the provision of information to track the UK’s progress towards international commitments on greenhouse gases (climate change) and harmful air pollutants (air pollution).
As part of its international commitments the UK reports:
- Estimates of greenhouse gases to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and European Union EU Monitoring Mechanism Regulation (MMR).
- Estimates of UK air pollutant emissions to the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe and the European Monitoring and Evaluation Programme (UNECE & EMEP) and National Emission Ceilings Directive (NECD).
